My organisation has SharePoint 2013 on prem. The site runs good on all client workstations but when user is connected to external network using VPN Client, SharePoint is not accessible. It gives a could not connect error. I tried turning the firewall on and off but no help. Is it something to do with SSL configuration? Other clients like Citrix do not reproduce this scenario.
